It’s great to have a professional sports franchise close to where you live.  We love cheering on the New Orleans Saints, aw do fans for other teams all across the country.  Burt how good a deal is it for taxpayers who are often called upon to underwire the cost of having a pro team?  The Green Bay Packers, one of the smallest sports markets in the country, cost the state of Wisconsin nothing. Zero?  A heck of a deal.  The New Orleans Saints cost Louisiana taxpayers, so far, almost $500 million.  Is it worth it?  Should the state subsidize a football team and ignore the numerous public needs?  Take a look at this week’s column that analyzes this very problem.  You can read it now by Clicking on the Red Flashing Box above, or by Clicking Here.
